Follow this link to learn more about the anatomy & physiology of the digestive tract
summary: the GI tract is a single cell barrier of protection between the outside world & the inside of our body. Immune cells are numerous here. It digests (breaksdown) foods, and absorbs the nutrients & water to enter our blood stream. ...Read more
Absorbs Nutrients: That's a very complicated question and there is not an easy answer. The body breaks down the food you eat to its component parts and then absorbs that to create energy. You can find a lot of information at your local library or on the internet. ...Read more
Best not to: Your body has a natural mechanism for eliminating waste, and generally it is better to let it handle it. Cleansing usually involves ingesting or inserting various 'natural' toxins which serve only to upset your gut's normal homeostasis (=balanced environment). Occasionally the body needs help restoring itself back to balance, esp after antibiotics, so probiotics may help in this specific case. ...Read more
U can die , maybe.: Seriously speaking, failure of GI tract is uncommon unlike that of the kidney, heart, lungs and brain. Most GI conditions are related to infection, inflammation, bleeding and ulcers and u usually recover from these and won't cause GI crash or failure.

Eat a healthy: Hi fiber diet, drink 80-100 ounces of caffeine free/alcohol free fluids daily, 20 oz extra per 30 minutes of strenous exercise. And never do any of those colon cleansing scams. They are not necessary, are of no documented value or need and all they do is redistribute your wealth to those who are selling you that garbage. ...Read more
Any fluids: That are caffeine free and alcohol free; 80-100 ounces per day. High fiber foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and salads. But be sure to be drinking the fluids. Absolutely more important for constipation than the diet. A probiotic such as florastor or align is also helpful. ...Read more
Look at diet first: Whatever goes into your gut affects what happens. Review your diet. If you aren't eating a healthy diet, it's likely you'll have some symptoms. You should be aiming for a diet high in fiber (fruits, veggies, whole grains), low in red meat (notice I didn't say none!); proteins should be lean. Drink lots of water, minimize caffeine (again,I didn't say none!). Get some exercise regularly. How's that? ...Read more

Stuff for digestion:

Ifstill having problems see your doc for better answers after you know the cause of your problem. ...Read more
Organs: There are many organs involved in the digestive system. These include the mouth, teeth and salivary glands in the upper portion. The stomach, small and large bowel are where food is broken down and absorbed. The liver, pancreas, gallbladder also play large roles in making and storing digestive chemicals. ...Read more
Depends: Depends on what you mean by "mess up". Intense exercise causes more blood flow to be routed to your muscles and away from less useful organs at that time such as your digestive system. As a result some people will get diarrhea that can sometimes contain blood if the lack of blood flow is severe enough. This is one of the theories regarding "runners trots". ...Read more
Eat healthy/exercise: Your question is a little vague, but you can't go wrong with the following advice: eat healty, well-balanced meals high in fiber & low in animal fat; practice moderation & avoid excess calories to keep your weight under control; regular exercise improves GI transit of food through your gut. Keep in mind that too much of a good thing is not a good thing; fad diets & supplements often come & go. ...Read more
